Car Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that more than 33,500 people died in car collisions in 2012, with about 2.36 million other people experiencing serious injuries from car crashes. The troubling thing is that most of these accidents could have been prevented. When people text and drive, drink and drive or just don’t follow the rules of the road, the likelihood of them causing an accident increases.

Pedestrian Accidents

On the busy streets of New Jersey, pedestrian accidents are bound to happen. Our roads are confusing, congested and populated with dangerous and aggressive drivers navigating roadways that are riddled with hazards and a crumbling infrastructure. These factors are dangerous for drivers and pedestrians alike. New Jersey works to ensure the safety of pedestrians but there are still many reasons why pedestrian accidents occur.

Truck Accidents

Trucking accidents on the New Jersey Turnpike and elsewhere throughout New Jersey may involve serious injury, even fatality, because trucks are far bigger and heavier than the cars they hit. Most trucking accidents are entirely preventable if only the trucker or the trucking company has followed the federal trucking rules and regulations. If you are injured in a truck accident, the results can be devastating. You could suffer from serious injuries that can impact your life and livelihood.

Motorcycle Accident

New Jersey is a diverse state with a wide variety of sites to enjoy and roads to experience. Motorcyclists from all over the country come to New Jersey to enjoy mountain roads, pristine farmlands, and bustling beach communities. Though New Jersey is known for congestion and some unsightly roadways, many bikers know where to find truly beautiful terrain and communities. Motorcycles have become a popular past time for many in the state. As the population of biker rises, so does the chance for accidents.

Train & Bus Accidents

The great state of New Jersey is known for its amazing network of trains and buses that allow commuters to leave their vehicles behind and travel to and from locations with the confidence that, generally, their mass transit choice would save them time and money. Safety, reliability and affordability are just some of the many reasons New Jersey’s mass transit system is widely used by so many people each day.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles are quickly becoming one of the most popular modes of transportation and recreation. Cycling is becoming a culture and New Jersey continues to work hard to provide safe lanes for travel and even bike paths that link towns and allow riders a path free of cars and pedestrians. Unfortunately, accidents are bound to happen and when cyclists are forced to share the road with other drivers in various sized vehicles, the risk of injury skyrockets.

Injured Passengers

Car accidents can be devastating. When we are the passengers of vehicles, we are at risk of injury based on the actions of our driver and others on the road. Most people take the necessary precautions to protect their passengers and avoid incidents as they get from one location to another. Obviously, accidents happen. Fortunately, if you were injured in a private vehicle, your immediate medical bills and lost wages should be covered under their insurance policy.
